Colton Bates

Colton Started with FieldReveal in July of 2023 as a Customer Success Specialist and currently resides in Waconia, Minnesota. Colton grew up on a family farm near a small town in South Central, Minnesota called Green Isle. With an immense passion for the field of agriculture, Colton decided to pursue an Associate’s degree in Ag Business Management from South Central College. He then decided to further his education and obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Agronomy from Southwest Minnesota State University.

Upon graduating college in 2018, Colton accepted a position as a Sales Agronomist for Crystal Valley Coop in South Central, Minnesota. As a sales agronomist, Colton worked with growers to better their farming practices and hit their yield goals by suggesting precise fertilizer, chemical, and seed recommendations. Then, in 2020 Colton accepted a position as a Customer Success Specialist for a precision agriculture company called Solinftec. Colton was responsible for training retailers across the U.S. how to utilize the dispatch and logistics system.

Today, as the Customer Success Specialist for FieldReveal, Colton’s primary role is to onboard, implement, and train current and upcoming customers on how to utilize our platform.

In his free time, Colton enjoys helping on his family farm, especially during the peak times of spring planting and fall harvest and working with their cattle year round. In the summer time, Colton can be found playing slow pitch softball, or relaxing with family and friends on the lake. However, Colton is always looking forward to the fall, as one of his primary passions is hunting.
